death in sacramento county. the first, can we put us and all our family back together as she replied you already hurt me so bad, i'm over it, never going back to a cheater, never. moe texted this back, come and pick me up. we are suppose to grow old together. he has been on the run for a week now, a retired fbi profiler doesn't think that moe is headed for the santa cruz mountains, the yosemite, or the sierra, but looking for amenity. >> the only best chance is to find a big crowd to blend into and try not to stand out. >> reporter: they think that he is headed to l.a. or mexico and probably already sporting a new hairdo. while the 55-year-old man with obviously dyed hair might be odd, it's not as strange as the final text from moe to his wife, time stamped after sarah douglas' time of death. you should have came and picked me up. that thought, punctuated with a
sad face. and now that former fbi agent believes that one of his friends will eventually rat him out whether or not it is before he leaves the country is anyone's guess. live in the newsroom, kpix 5. >> moe has the keys to every cal fire gate and building in the state. they say that it is impossible to change all of them. >> just about 20 minutes ago the emergency crews at san jose's international managed to get a runway back open. and a small plane that had to make an emergency landing about 8:00 tonight. and the landing gear failed on the aircraft. three people were on the plane as they are all okay. the plane sat on the runway though for a couple of hours. the crews, they have now moved it off the runway and the operations are back to normal. well the cal football team has suspended one of their top players. he's accused of attacking a man and kicking his dog. and police say that drew beat the guy up in the middle of the day on tuesday across from the law school. the victim's injuries are

>> the students have started a petition on change.org hoping to get the diocese to back off. the spokesman for the oakland diocese says that the bishop is simply updating the contract language. the clause reads in part, "to model and promote behavior in conformity with the teaching of the roman catholic faith in the matters of faith and moral. and do nothing to bring discredit to the school or the diocese of oakland." we're getting a better idea on what caused the delay a deadly rather midair collision over san pablo bay. the ntsb report says it happened after the hawker c ferry plane was taking some pictures of the golden gate bridge. the hawker pilot radioed the pilot of the cessna that he was going to pass him low to the left. the cessna pilot responded thinking that it would make a good photo. thinking that he had the space to do that, he went to pass, but the report says that he "felt and heard a thump and he realized that the two planes
had collided." he looked up, observed the cessna inverted and going down. the hawker pilot says he flew to his home airport. the crews pulled the cessna out of the water three days later along with the body of the 33- year-old pilot. and the final report could take several months. three people are missing tonight after the hot air balloon caught fire, which happened at the balloon festival in virginia tonight. and witnesses say that the balloon drifted into the power lines and as you can see caught fire. police are searching for the three people who were on board. so far no sign of wreckage has been found. a very close encounter between a passenger plane and a drone. >> a remote control aircraft. >> a drone was flying higher than allowed on march 22 at 2,300 feet. the near disaster happened as the u.s. airways express jet was approaching the tallahassee regional airport. it was so close that the pilot thought there was a collision.

>> but i have to get back because sunday is what? >> mother's day. >> it is mother's day. that is a public service announcement, do not forget. >> well tonight what would your mom say if she saw this place? holes in the floor, mold on the ceiling, cracks in the walls. well this apartment is in san francisco's lower hate. it has not been updated in decades, but the landlord just doubled the rent to $6,000 a month. a group of musicians and artists live here. they were paying $2,900 a month and then they got a letter from their landlord. >> there's a lot of other people in the situation as soon as they received the legal notices, you don't see them on the news and you don't hear their stories because they just feel intimidated. so we're going to try to stand up to it. their primary motive is to make more money off the unit. that's not a good enough reason for us to leave. >> now raising the rent is a common tactics that they use to force tenants out. and tonight we have another example of just how hard it is
to find a place to live. nowadays people, they are walking up to the homes offering to buy them. the thing is that these homes, they are not for sale. tucked away on the quiet street. >> it has been almost a year looking for a place. >> their two daughters, they are savoring their new home. the couple bought it without having to outbid a single soul. >> this is a dream come true for us to find a beautiful home that we can raise our children in and stay in san francisco. we are extremely happy. >> reporter: but how did they do it when the city is great and the need is slim. >> we have less than 500 units on the market right now in san francisco and we need thousands to meet the demand. >> reporter: after a year of being beat out on every property that they wanted, the o'donnell's made a big change in strategy. they switched realtors and they bought a house that wasn't even for sale. >> reporter: the realtor dug up
the hundreds of properties pulled off the market years ago. on the list, the victorian in lower pacific heights. the owner lived in texas as the o'donnell sent them a personal note. >> we wanted them to know that we were not an investor that we were not trying to scam them, we wanted them to know that we were a felling. >> and it is something that the seller couldn't refuse and they got their house. >> reporter: the couple paid about $1.5 million for the three bedroom three bathhouse. and hundreds of thousands of dollars more than the old listing. but less in comparable properties. >> and they gave us the opportunity to get a great house with less than what we would have otherwise. >> reporter: and leaving this family with a very happy ending. >> well the owners got more than $1.5 million. they did not have to go through the trouble of staging or prepping their home or holding open houses. and only on 5, we discovered state lawmakers breaking the rules again every time that they would hit that switch. tonight wait until you hear how
star command, i'm detecting increof happiness. ...and the speed readings are off the chart! paradise found! luscious locks! great glittering galaxies! the happiest place on earth keeps getting happier! this summer with a disneyland resort room and ticket package you get the time you need to enjoy it all. there's no end in sight! i'm going to need more time. rules.. again. last year we show s casting vo tonight we catch state lawmakers breaking the rules again. last year we showed you the assembly members casting votes for other lawmakers called ghost voting and it is suppose to be a big no-no, but mark kelly shows us it is still happening. >> reporter: it seems like nothing ever changes in the hallowed halls of the state
capital. there is the l.a. assemblyman last year. casting a vote for the hometown assemblyman jimmy gomez who is nowhere to be seen. and this year he is still at it. this time helping out the assemblywoman. and san francisco's assemblyman, he was a ghost voting pro last year, multiple votes at a time. on this visit he's on the best behavior only voting for himself. but look at the assemblywoman here after casting her own vote, she gets up to push off the assemblyman's voting switch on the house resolution to declare april child abuse prevention month and then does it again for two other bills. and where is he? she seemed to ask the nearby assemblyman from riverside. and plus the rulebook, it could not be clearer, a member may not operate the voting switch of any other member. >> of course there's the rule itself and how they interpret that rule and when it comes to
voting here on the assembly floor that there is a difference. >> it is truly the practice for them. >> reporter: he is the assembly chief's administrative officer, saying that we gotten it wrong last year. what we saw is not called ghost voting. >> to me that is what we call the assisted voting. >> reporter: as long as they are somewhere in the chambers that it is okay, but we couldn't find any definition of the assisted voting in the rulebook. >> would you admit to this all? >> yeah, but i think that again, it is to define the rule that you always need to have rules and then you have the customer practice. >> reporter: mark kelly, k people's exhibit ix 5. >> the assemblywoman turned down our request for an interview about all of this, but sent us a statement saying voting for another assembly member at their request is a custom. the bottom line, don't expect any changes any time soon. tonight, we know that thenigerian military had four hours warning that a mass kidnapping was going to happen. four hours. but the report by the
international says that the security forces, they were afraid of getting into a fight with the extremists, which are the rebels that kidnapped 276 schoolgirls. they had the plan to sell them into slavery. now, right now, a team of the u.s. and the british officials, they are leading the rescue efforts. and nearly 40 years ago tonight, the world watched the biggest law enforcement gunfight in u.s. history. pat harvey takes us inside the epic shootout that all started with the famous heiress kidnapped from the bay area. >> the little old lady said are you looking for all the people with the guns and ammunition? >> reporter: what happened next took it earlier. >> there's a big kidnapping on the west coast, the victim is patricia. >> it was february of 1974 when the army, a self-styled militia kidnapped the publishing heiress, a crime captivating
the nation, taking an even more of a shocking turn when herst joined her kidnappers. >> i'm beginning to feel the fbi would rather that i would get called. but chosen to stand and fight. >> reporter: she next showed up on the san francisco bank's surveillance video, participating in a robbery. armed with a semiautomatic weapon. and with the $10,000 that they stole, they headed to southern california where they shot up an engelwood sporting good store in a bid to get survival supplies and a getaway that had gone bad. >> the community was about 95% black at that time as they offered up all kinds of information to our detectives. >> reporter: information that lead police to 54th and compton. to the yellow house with the white trim with the intriguing possibility that she might be inside. they retired the lapd colleagues, directed the on- scene swap response. >> i could hear them giving
orders to the people, a lot of profanity, saying that we're not going to give up. there were about 26 commands given to them to surrender. and the lieutenant fired several rounds. they opened up with a gunfire that was unprecedented in los angeles police history. >> i've got movement back here. >> it was just so loud, and so many rounds at one time going off. it sounded like everything being ripped. >> and they had fully automatic weapons. >> reporter: the converted semiautomatic weapons, two fully automatic weapons. and a .38 revolver. >> police deployed the tear gas. >> they would bounce off their window and roll down to my feet and i was trying to kick them away from me. >> reporter: the law enforcement soon realized that
the s.a.l. members inside the house were determined to fight to the end. and with people in south l.a. trapped in the middle. >> don't cry, don't cry. >> don't cry. >> they ran out of ammunition. >> you ran out of ammunition? >> oh yes. i ran out of ammunition in five minutes. >> oh my. >> i think albert fired more rounds than anybody. and i think that he had 594 rounds. >> reporter: law enforcement decided to throw more tear gas into the house. which touched off the large amount of the ammunition inside. >> and the chopper is overhead that the fire is raging. >> eventually the house was engulfed in flames. >> and the obvious conclusion is that the los angeles police, they have indeed found the nesting place of the army and there is not much left of it not. >> there is not much left of it now, bob. >> the standoff lasted two hours, six sal members died. police estimate that over 9,000 rounds were fired.

breezy. 85 on sunday, so we have transitioned to the warmer pattern beginning on sunday. a big ridge that will be off to the west and a big low for them off to the east. now the difference in the pressure between the two, they will determine how strong the wind is if you are outside there today, 25 to 30 miles per hour. tomorrow, it will likely be even windier as that low will be strengthening as they move away and eventually that they would move out just in time for mother's day and it won't be warm, but hot away from the water temperatures, running 15 to 20 degrees above average starting on tuesday. for mother's day, we will be breezy tonight, a little bit along the coast, but not too much. a mild day tomorrow, similar to today, but still windy near the water. the wind, they will be relaxing, the temperatures will climb, just in time for mom to have that out door, which will be very happy for them on sunday. and one degree below average tomorrow, they are topping out at 68. sunshine, breezy at 71 degrees.
